As far as the meeting and information exchanged with Dr. Degala, I couldn't have asked for the meeting to have been any better. However, the day before, we received a telephone call from a female staff member advising us there was no stone and to make an appointment to see him in a year. This info was totally misleading due to the Doctor reviewing my MRCP results and prescribing additional medicine during this meeting. This could have resulted in a very serious condition concerning my health.. This however doesn't change my opinion of the Doctor and I have complete faith in him.

This was my first visit with Dr. Degala. I needed to schedule a colonoscopy (which I did). I found Dr. Degala to be prompt, courteous, thorough and very professional. I will have to update once I have my colonoscopy. For right now, I have no reservations in having him do this procedure.

I called Dr. Degala's office on Monday and they were able to see me on Wednesday, as I had unfortunately waited a week with symptoms. Dr. Degala was as usual professional and caring and took many steps to take care of my problem.

I was seen by Angie who was fabulous! My colonoscopy date is not satisfactory. I have to have this done before the new year or will have to wait until next November. That's a problem right now. The woman I spoke with was pretty rude, telling me everyone waits till the end of the year for insurance reasons. Wish I'd known that in advance! When I made the appt. I was told it would be no problem, now it is.

I've been with Dr. D nearly three years after parting with another Gastro specialist with whom I worked four years. Dr. Degala is a excellent communicator who listens to the patient. You are given a computerized handout upon leafing that covers your list of medications, your medical history, current status, and suggested recommendations.
